“To make the truth more plausible, it’s absolutely necessary to mix a bit of falsehood with it.”
I love this quote for two reasons.
Firstly, Dostoyevsky has always been my favourite author – he is a masterful storyteller.
Secondly, although my current writing project is non-fiction and based on historical research, I am looking for the story amongst the facts. And so it reminds me I must use a little imagination to make the truth more plausible
